Mixed Media Monday,Theme"Story Time"

This one I decided to do in my journal book.Its a sad story about a house. In case you can't read it,it says "Once upon a time there was a house full of love and laughter.The house thought they would be together forever but soon everybody left one by one." There is alot of meaning behind this short story! I know it looks kind of cluttered but I'm used to doing alot on one page.My thoughts just go on and on!

Wonders of his Love.

Theme Thursday,Theme"Beautiful"

You know that saying,"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"I think that is so true. Beauty is different for everybody.I always find in beauty in what most people would find ugly.Like stained old lace,an old picture,a broken old window thats usually in the trash. I try to find Beauty Everyday!
